BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Magazine will be released during the July 4th weekend, but Wednesday morning at the Bryan High Athletic Fieldhouse a commemorative wrap-around cover was unveiled featuring members of the Viking football team.

For the past four years, Dave Campbell’s has done a commemorative wrap-around cover for certain high school teams across the state, and this year in conjunction with Suddenlink Communications in Bryan, DCTF is honoring Bryan High as one of their featured cover schools as head coach Ross Rogers and his Vikings prepare for their 51st season of gridiron competition.

Devin Lewis with Dave Campbell’s Texas Football and Curt Allison with Suddenlink Communications in Bryan were on hand to unveil the commemorative magazine cover to the players and others in attendance Wednesday morning.

And while we are in the digital age, being on a magazine cover you can hold in your hands was a big thrill!

“Everyone still reads the magazine, but for some of us older guys that have been reading it since 1961 and I’ve got nearly every copy in my house up in the library, it’s really exciting,” said Rogers. “Last year we had a better year and we have a great senior class so it was fun to have something like this happen,” concluded the Hall of Fame head coach.

“We’re excited to have everyone here and excited to have everyone working,” said Viking Defensive End/Linebacker Nic Caraway.

Bryan’s commemorative edition magazine can be obtained through the Viking Athletic office for a donation.

Dave Campbell’s Texas Football is fondly referred to as ‘the bible of Texas High School Football.’ This is the 62nd edition. It was started back in 1961 and celebrated its diamond anniversary last year.
